A Michigan bar will pay your bill if the Lions beat the Packers

Sunday December 28th, 2014

A bar in a Detroit suburb is offering to pay its customers' entire bill if the Detroit Lions beat the Green Bay Packers on the road on Sunday.

Rudy Jarbo, the owner of The Pour House in Madison Heights, Michigan, told ESPN his bar will pay for the food and drinks of customers who arrive before kickoff and stay for the entire game, should the Lions win.

"There's a lot of excitement around here about the Lions making the playoffs, possibly getting that first-week bye and being two weeks away from the Super Bowl," said Jarbo. "I think this gives Lions fans an incentive to watch physically, mentally, emotionally and financially."

The bar only has a capacity of 100, which ensures things can't get too out of hand for Jarbo. And while he's hoping Detroit can pull off the win, odds are he needn't worry too much about losing money: the Lions have not won at Lambeau Field since 1991, a stretch of 23 straight Packers wins at the stadium.
